115 St. Patrick’s Day 2019

Third show in three weeks, and this one was on St. Patrick’s Day, and so naturally we chose an all-Irish set, with suggestions from Malaclypse, Hugh and myself.
We started with an hour of music for the first parade, with a certain amount of “going places” to the titles, as you can see. Then we had the proper show, with talking and all, and to keep things going we extended the postshow to another full hour to keep the celebrations going.

St. Paddy’s Day Show

On Sunday, March 17th, we will present a varied set of Irish music. We will not be serving green beer. And, thanks to the madness inherent in the international usage of DST, we will be starting the show proper at 1400 KI time instead of the usual 1300, so we will be an hour later than usual for our North American listeners, but the usual time for Europeans. Pre-show, as usual, will start approximately half an hour earlier.

See you in the Cavern

114 International Women’s Day 2019

A session for International Women’s Day, the third we’ve done, and in this case a solo show from Alan. Additionally, we were pleased to assist the MystiTech crew with their show by playing their music for their live presentation.
Technical difficulties meant that I had to restart my DJ software, and we still had some difficulty with sound quality. I will do some more experiments to see if I can resolve this issue.
The MystiTech music was composed and played by Christian Zwang, the musician for all of MystiTech’s Lost Art series.  I’ve included their playlist first.

Following that, the intention for International Women’s Day was to play tracks that are all played or sung, as well as composed or written by female musicians. Additionally, I tried to fill the list with tracks that have not been played before on Radio Free D’ni. One of two favourites were still part of the list, of course.

No postshow, as Fil followed on immediately from our session.

Yes, we Can!

Sunday, 3rd of March, we will present German Krautrock/psychedelic/prog band Can. A somewhat (and intentionally) mysterious band, as well as influential in the genesis of 1970s Prog.

See you in the Cavern,

112 Jon Hiseman

This show was very much one that I put together, as Jon Hiseman is a musician I have followed since I first became aware of him, and admired everthing he’s done.  I was quite surprised to learn that he is not well known, and neither is his most famous band, Colosseum – neither Mal nor Ed was familiar with them, nor were many of our audience.  Some were though (Mysty for a start) and others liked what we played.  Which is what we’re aiming for, really.

A trawl through the highlights of a very varied career, not in terms of succsss (which was never a primary driver) but in the styles of music and ways of expression.  Somewhat stellar in that respect.  I only hope we did him justice.

111 MOULa 9th Anniversary

A magnificent audience for this show, combining both RFD and MOULa fans and publicity from Minasunda and our companions in the program of events.

The ninth anniversary meant that we used a combination of the number 9, willow, leather, pottery and copper as our themes, along with some soundtrack music and music from cavern explorers.

There was no postshow, as we went straight into the Magic Light Show. The soundtrack for that, and the dance party that followed, are included below.

Jack Bruce in Performance

On the 3rd of February, we are going to present Jack Bruce in live recordings. For those asking, “who is Jack Bruce,” he is a virtuoso bass player, songwriter and singer and was a founding member of Cream.

See you in the Cavern,
